Thank you David for producing this fine website
Great interview, David. Always insightful listening to you.
You got me thinking when you said "[society is not the problem, people are the problem; society is just a reflection of people]"….that most social "reformers" – from Stalin to the typical humanities professor at any university USA – are trying not only to reform society, but to remold the human mind and heart. 'Socialist realism' in the 30s, 'political correctness' today,…it all invokes the Orwellian concept of "thought crime" and blind adherence to sacred cows.
Society can certainly be tinkered with…or even torn down in totality, but reshaping the human mind and heart, this is a task too great for even the ambitions of Stalin, who wasn't lacking for tools; he had the totality of the state at his disposal. And yet, all he ever really created was a cowed and compliant automaton who was forever terrified of the repercussions of initiative. This shell of a human being was the "new socialist man."
So it is today, the complete absence of intellectual diversity on the Left reflects a "soft" totalitarianism, where potential ostracizing is always just one slip of the tongue away. Those under the sway of this system – mostly in the universities, the newsrooms, in corporate America and in government, are little different than their counterparts in '30s Russia…cowardly, compliant, and terrified of stepping outside the box of political-correctness.
Fascinating! -most of which I heard. The quality of the 'live podcast' was a little "iffy". David's viewpoints are very, very interesting.
Those numbers could turn out to be very large, Mr. Horowitz (I have faith in our young) – and it will comfort me (nor will it surprise me) to see that happen. Everyone who cares about their future and their children's futures please understand that the progressives intend to win this time, and it will take every normal American's help to stop them.
Who knows what the number will be in the future Mr. Horowitz, of those who will follow in your footsteps and take a stand against the 'progressives' that have invaded the Universities of America? Those numbers could turn out to be very large, Mr. Horowitz (I have faith in our young) – and it will comfort me (nor will it surprise me) to see that happen.
Thanks to David for his courage and tireless crusade to expose the radicals… I have read other books by David which give us a Hard does of Truth and Reality to combat the forces of evil that are trying to destroy America and Israel. Everyone who cares about their future and their children's futures please understand that the progressives intend to win this time, and it will take every normal American's help to stop them.
